This is a great time of the year for football fans. As a football fan, I’m glad to have the Giants playing each week and any number of amazing college football games to watch on almost any day of the week. Seriously – how great is college football? You talk about people who play for the passion and the glory of the sport – I believe that you have that more in college football than at any other level of the game (though some high school football programs come close).
Of course, there are the letdowns that come along with this time of the year. Some people are bummed because they’re going back to school (not me – I like to teach at the local college) and others are annoyed that the weather is changing (again, not me – I like the cold weather). But for fans of the Rutgers University football program, well, we’re annoyed for a different reason today.
Rutgers got absolutely rocked during their home opener today against Cincinnati…almost unacceptably so. The final score was 47 to 15, but I have to admit that after the first half I really didn’t waste any more of my time watching the blood bath. I think that so many of us in New Jersey remember the dream season that Rutgers had a few years ago and we hope to see that on the field each weekend. Well, that type of stuff doesn’t just “happen” though it does take a lot of hard work. I know that the football players are putting in their best efforts during practice and during the games – it’s evident! I mean you can see it during the games.
However, Cincinnati was just a much better and a much faster football team. It really was that overall team speed that I noticed the most when watching today’s game. But, that’s okay. The Scarlet Knights are hosting Howard University next weekend and we’re looking for a roaring comeback after today’s beat down!
